ABOUT THIS IMAGE
Taken June 1936, Marianna, Arkansas, United States
(Library of Congress)
"A cotton trader stands at the entrance of Greenhaw Brothers’ Cotton buyers. Whilst a seemingly innocuous photograph I chose for its composition and technical difficulties (the sky reflections and dirt being one of them), this image provides a glimpse into America’s long and troubled history tied to the production of this commodity, from a racial and economic perspective that carried through into the Great Depression."
– Jordan J. Lloyd
This historical photograph has been meticulously researched and rendered into colour from a black and white original by a skilled artisan, continuing a craft tradition that has existed since photography began.
